Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does it cost to attend Chinquapin Prep?
A: Most of the students’ tuition at Chinquapin Prep is paid for by our contributors, but a small amount is charged per student for tuition, room, board and transportation. This sliding scale fee is based on a confidential income statement, and ranges from $40 to $325+ per month, with the majority paying $50 or less. To help cover this cost, students may work extra hours on campus in addition to their daily chores.
Q: How many students apply to Chinquapin Prep?
A: It is not unusual to have over 200 applicants competing for roughly 30 openings each year. Make sure to show up to recruiting meetings on time, and plan to be there for a few hours.
Q: What if my child is not accepted to Chinquapin Prep?
A: Any child not accepted to Chinquapin Prep may re-apply the following spring. Applications do not carry over to the next year, so the entire recruiting meeting/summer session process must be completed in order to be reconsidered.
Q: What are the bus stop locations and times?
